Education Grants:

The Charity offers two sources of grants to Associate Members looking to undertake further study.

Nurses at UCH London

Janet Hull Memorial Fund Travel Scholarship

This fund was established in 1979/80 in memory of Janet Hull, a UCH student and staff nurse who died tragically in a road accident on her return from honeymoon, one week after her wedding. Her parents took the initiative to create a memorial fund to help UCH nurses with travel costs in pursuit of professional nursing studies.

UCLH Charity now manages the fund and the Nurses’ Charity participates in the selection of candidates.

The fund is designed to continue in perpetuity and allows for a small annual increase to offset inflation. The money available for a scholarship is £2000.

The Janet Hull Memorial Fund Travel Scholarship is open to all registered nurses and registered nursing associates who are members of the UCH London Nurses’ Charity or are employed by UCLH.
